To get a meaningful view of lender “pull-through,” Ellie Mae reviewed a sampling of loan applications initiated 90 days prior (i.e., the August 2013 applications) to calculate an overall closing rate of 53.1% in November, up from 51.4% in October 2013 (see full report).“Refinances increased by six percentage points in November, the first time in ten months refinance share increased on a month-over-month basis,” said Jonathan Corr, president and chief operating officer of Ellie Mae. “This was probably attributable to the quarter of a point decline in the interest rates on the 30-year note in November, which declined to 4.526. “HARP-related refinancing activity also increased, as conventional refinances at 95%-plus LTV rose to 8.30% in November from 7.30% in October.
